Police arrest two terrorism suspects

Milan police arrested two Moroccan-born men on charges of plotting attacks against Italian targets. These targets included a supermarket, police barracks, and Milan’s Piazza del Duomo. The two men were said to have no ties to international terrorist groups, but did admire the work of such groups as Al Qaeda. Wiretaps of the two men uncovered the intent to use “bombs” made of gunpowder from firecrackers. Planning for the attacks is said to have been in the preliminary stages.
